Crayon Roll

I finally made a crayon roll that I have been wanting got do for awhile now. It didn't turn out way good but hey its my first so maybe the nest one will be better. Trae thinks its great it is finally done so that is all that matters.
Now that I haven't lived by my mom I have had to start teaching myself how to sew things. I do feel pretty good about what I have been able to do. And I actually really enjoy it. When I have the time.

My Danncer

So my Trae really likes to dance. He also has a new show he really likes "Yo Gabba Gabba" it is kind of a dorky show but he really likes it cause they sing and dance. We are very limited on what we can watch since we don't have TV we just watch shows on the internet. Well Gabba Gabba has about 4 episodes that are there. One we watch over and over. So here is Trae's rendition of a dance they do on it.

Matt also has a rendition that is on my camera but he said he would be SUPER MAD if I posted it so if any of you really want to see it then just let him know. He reads all the comments!! Love you Babe!!

Hair Clips

Super fun clips giveaway. Just go to this link and enter. It ends Friday


The other day I was making dinner and it turned really quiet cause Kira was eating and Trae was just at the atble coloring. (I thought) So I look around the corner and this is what I find. He said he needed some cause he was going to the pool. He had it everywhere. He wasn't going to get sun burned at all. Even his clothes were protected.

We made it!!!

So as all of you probably know we were in a hurricane yesterday. Fun times! It didn't get bad until later in the afternoon but when it hit the wind was super strong and rain was coming down sideways. The eye if the hurricane was about an hour away from us but we still felt it pretty good. This morning when I woke up I look don the Internet and everyone from Wesleco south had major flooding we only had a little flooding in our dining room area but our streets weren't flooded at all. And the most amazing thing we had power all day and Internet. They did say 150,000 people in Mcallen did not have power so I have no idea how we were so lucky. I don't know what my kids would have done.
Just a quick update for us down here in Texas. We are all well and even tried to go shopping today and the mall itself was closed except for the main stores. Who closes the mall?!

This is outside our front window the tree stayed rooted but was bent all day. Trae just kept saying that it is raining so BAD and we are in a hurricane. But its only a little scary out there. When you walked out the door the wind was so strong. I was amazed and I didn't even go out when it was super bad. Matt had to run to get sand bags from our Bishops house when it was pretty bad him and the boys were wet from head to toe.

A New Bike

So Trae has been wanting things every time we go to the store. So I thought it would be a good idea that he would have to save his money for the things he wants. So we went to Michaels a few weeks back and got him a piggy bank that he could paint. He loved it.

It is a multi colored piggy bank. A Trae original. He was very proud of the job he did he showed everyone who came over to the house.

Putting his money that he had in a bowl before the piggy bank.
Getting his dollars in his pocket to go to the store.
Testing out his bank in line. Loving it!!
Paying the lady. He ended up saving $20 more than half the bike pretty good job. And she was great she kept telling him you have so much money and just talking to him the whole time. It was so fun to watch. Normally he likes it when they give you money back but it didn't even bother him that he didn't get any back.
Riding in the cart with his bike to the car.
Testing it out right when he got home. He has a hard time pedalling I like his legs are not quite strong enough or he just hasn't gotten the hang of it yet. Either way he loves it and you get a workout helping him ride.

Good Job Trae. We love you!! Your new bike is awesome.

What a bugger!

So My dear Trae will not nap in his room which is fine cause I can still vacuum and do the things that I need to do it is just hard when Miss Thing wakes up before him. She really enjoys waking him up and giving him kisses. Trae is like his Mom he really doesn't enjoy being woken up. So hes not to thrilled about the love that is being shown. But Kira on the other hand thinks she is really funny. My dear Kira who is so spunky I don't know what I am going to do with her.

So many people are doing this right now I had to join in on the fun!
Here are the directions:1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments. HAVE FUN!

Sweet Boy

I get myself into the worst going to bed habits even with my kids. With Trae he has been rocked to sleep for ever but now at least you just have to lay by him and hold him. (But I love that time with him. Kira is my dream child when it comes to sleep. Give her a bottle and she is out for the night for 12 hrs. HAPPY DAY!!
Anyways great story about Trae. The other night we were laying in his room going to bed he rolled over put his arm around my neck and started rubbing my face. As he says "Your cute. Your eyes are cute. Your hair is cute. Your face is cute. Your cute." I thought it was the sweetest thing. I love just laying there with him. The funnniest things come out of his mouth sometimes and then the sweetest things.
Who knows what I am going to do if Kira figures out she can have quiet time with Mom or Dad when you lay down to go to bed or nap.

The Pink Skirt

I finally got Kira's skirt done. I still need to trim it but we had to try it on her. It is so fun.

She wasn't quite sure about the material at first but now its ok.

Cow Appreciation Day

I am late posting these pics but last Friday was Cow Appreciation Day at Chick Fil A. (Our favorite place to go) So you had to dress up like a cow and you would get a free meal. I thought Trae would have fun with this so we did it! I made black spots then just taped them to us. Trae got a hat and some black spots when we went for story time there so he was set.

They have the best play area. Kira loves to climb on the big toys but Trae not so much.

This is her new smiling face when I am taking her picture.

Trae just being goofy. He was shaking his bootie!

Mom and Trae in our cow outfits.

He wanted a picture with this cow. I don't know why.
He fell asleep in like point 2 he was so tired. He was coloring on this paper then he put it over his head and was asleep.

Dressing Trae

The other day was dressing himself with a little help from Matt but he missed with his arms and he seriously thought it was the funniest thing ever. He was laughing so hard and just running around shakinghim bum and dancing. It was hilarious.

I was able to catch a little on video of Trae's awesome dance moves.

Best Helper

My Kira has found a new talent. Climbing! Yes it is so much fun. So now if I want to hurry and do my dishes I have to make sure she is not around cause it takes so much longer with her standing on the dishwasher. But she gets very excited when she gets up here and starts emptying the dishes or if she finds something she likes and starts using it. Funny busy girl!

Cool Glasses

We go to story time every Saturday at Barnes and Noble Trae loves it! They always get to do a craft that goes along with the story. Last week it was about a hamster going to Hollywood so they made glasses and Trae has been wearing them all around! Fun times!

New News


Well we have been trying to decide what we were going to be doing this fall and Pinnacle said they wanted us out there. So with long thought we said ok. I have had such mixed feeling cause I have really loved Buena Vista and I wasn't sure I was ready to leave. But we feel good about going to Idaho and are excited to be close to family! We will be there first of Oct. Fun times to come!!

Kiss anyone?!

This is Kira's new face she pulls when she wants a kiss. She goes around grunting with her lips puckered. So funny. But Trae informed me that he likes giving Kira kisses so its ok. When Matt is leaving for work she follows him around just grunting it is hilarious. Pucker up if you want a kiss

A new jersey!!

Aunt Alyssa has brain washed Trae to thinking that the Yankees are the best. So she got him a jersey made the has Jeters' number on it. Trae thinks it is pretty cool. the other day we got him some pants and socks so he is set. he wears them all over the house.

Posing in his new baseball uniform!

He has really enjoyed playing in our parking lot with any of the girls or guys when they are around.

Trying to catch the ball. He has the funniest faces when he is doing things.

Kira had to try the jersey on cause for a while Trae wouldn't try it on he kept saying it was too big and get upset so we put it on Kira and after that he was ok.


My dear sweet Kira J has figured out how to climb so nothing is safe. I put her bowl of peas on the table and she climbed on the leg of the chair and tipped it over spilling all over the floor but she just sat there content eating her peas. What am I going to do with this girl? Love her!!

Chris Brown our new HERO!!

My awesome husband surprised me Tuesday night with Chris Brown concert tickets!!! (5th row on the floor) Amazing! I was all smiles all day. The ladies at playgroup weren't super excited but I couldn't wait. We went to dinner at Texas Roadhouse before. So good. I seriously can't remember the last time we went to a restaurant without the kids it was so fun to just sit and talk and not have to entertain the kids.
Then we were off to the concert. When we got there all we saw was little girls just screaming that they were so excited and we thought to our self wow we are old. But it didn't stop us. The concert was so good. Amazing dancing. You all need to go to his concert we have already looked to see where he is playing next. I wish I would have brought my camera in but I didn't want to carry my purse so no pictures. Sorry.

Thanks Babe for a super fun date and especially for thinking of it and making it a surprise!! You are the best. Love you!!
